Fascination of Plants Day

The seventh international “Fascination of Plants Day” around 18 May 2024 will be launched by plant scientists across the world under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO).

The goal of this activity is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture and sustainable production of nutritious food, as well as for horticulture, forestry and the production of plant-based non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy and pharmaceuticals. The role of plants in environmental conservation is also a key message.

Tomato and Garden Eggs are food security crops providing nourishment to prevent malnutrition among rural poor in developing countries. Understanding the reaction of plant cultivars to viral diseases is a prerequisite for resistance breeding. Two cultivars of the solanaceous plants namely tomatoes and eggplant were physically challenged with viral isolate through mechanical sap inoculation and grafting by Plant Biology Undergraduate Students of the Department of Plant and Environmental Biology, University of Ghana.

The aim was to identify resistant cultivars that could be utilized in breeding programmes.
